I face a problem when installing OpenCV 4.0 after building OpenCV, which is stated as follows:

Install the project...

-- Install configuration: "Release" CMake Error at cmake_install.cmake:41 (file): file INSTALL cannot find "/home/user/OpenCV/opencv/build/3rdparty/ippicv/ippicv_lnx/icv/readme.htm".

Makefile:73: recipe for target 'install' failed make: * [install] Error 1

The OpenCV cannot be installed, which shows that I missed the ippicv files. I downloaded the ippicv file from the official website (,

and extract the file to /home/user/OpenCV/opencv_contrib/modules. Besides, I changed the path in /home/user/OpenCV/opencv/3rdparty/ippicv/ippicv.cmake from "" to "/home/user/OpenCV/opencv_contrib/modules/ippicv/"

After replacing the files and changing path, I still face the problem which shows that the file is likely to be missed. Please help.

Does this help ippicv?

For your reference, I finally solved it by copying the required file from the to the required location. By copying and renaming ippEULA.txt and readme.htm to the required location (creating several folders and copying the file to it according to the error message of missing files), I think I have solved it as there are no error messages shown afterward.
